Metaphor, Simile, and Turn-of-Phrase Dept.

From this month's number of Chronicles:

The U.S. Constitution, as I often say, poses no serious threat to our form of government. It has roughly the same tenuous relation to our political institutions as the book of Revelation has to the Unitarian Church.
-Joseph Sobran, The Bare Bodkin, "Calling Dr Johnson"
